From the Back Cover
"At the heart of each of us there exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm, made up of wave forms and resonances, which is absolutely individual and yet connects us to the universe." - George Leonard
From how the rich vibrations of music touch us emotionally to how the body and mind are made up of rhythmic waves, The Silent Pulse takes readers on a journey of self-discovery into the limitless possibilities of individual potential.
"George Leonard's writings on human potential have an ecstatic quality that turns the body toward its deepest intuition; an artful balance between the integrity of the individual and the mystery of the physical universe. Leonard captures that delicate dance-the silent pulse-between the mystical as literally cosmic and the ethical as truly personal." - Jeffrey J. Kripal, Chair of Religious Studies at Rice University and author of Esalen: America and the Religion of No Religion
"Leonard's synthesis on leading-edge research about consciousness, rhythms, light, perception, and alternative realities has the accuracy you'd expect from a long-time magazine editor and journalist. But he transcends all categories in this book: it is poetry, science writing, and adventure. It is hard to imagine that anyone could read it without being changed by it." - Marilyn Ferguson, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy
Drawn from scientific theory, particularly modern quantum physics, The Silent Pulse details the experiences of ordinary and extraordinary people who have uncovered remarkable truths about human capabilities. The exercises in this book, based on Leonard's workshops, will lead you to experience your own silent pulse of perfect rhythm.
